    Technically speaking (to not get deleted again!)


    It no longer just works!

  • AceNeerav Level 1 Level 1

    I understand but that 'another certain user' is only infuriating already frustrated people over here by challenging their acquisation based on their experiences which clearly is not his business! And those completely untechnical posts never get deleted!

    i might have a vague idea about what is going on here!


    Cook said 2014 is going to see some new product launches. a 12inch macbook, a new sized iphone and an iwatch is rumoured from sources whos rumor has been true previously. we can certainly expect ios8 and a new mac os.


    its not possible for me to assume that an organization this big doesn't have enough people to fix such a software bug for nearly a year.


    maybe then apple is trying to create the 'aha effect' of a greater intensity by letting people get more frustrated and then be blown over by new product launches. this can also cover up for seemingly big, but only cosmetic changes to its new OSes.


    its simple, when u starve someone they try and get their kicks from even a little. and even if u have more to offer, its only going to seem even more if they have starved!


    microsoft did that all the time, in which years apple gained its reputation as someone who's products delivered.

    I am having the same issue with my iPhone and old iPad.


    The refresh issue is **extremmely** annoying. Would be nice to get it fixed.

    Yeah - sums it up really.


    "*Must* be what it's like". Of course my ipad believes when I write "'must" I of course mean "just".

  • Maddawg777 Level 1 Level 1

    I Gave up. Apple is not going to fix this and rely on waiting out the support window.  they don't care.



    does anyone else keep getting unsubscribed from this thread?



    airplay is the only reason i have to put up with this garbage.x

    Hey guys, I'm from India and I have an 'iPhone 5 16GB' and 'iPad Air 16GB Wifi + Cellular', and I've been plagued by all the issues you all have. I've been an android user for almost 5 years now, and just last year I switched to iPhone and iOS. Initially was on iOS 6 and was very impressed by the speed and stability as compared to android. However when I updated to iOS 7, I started having all the issues mentioned in this thread. Whenever I would switch from another app, my facebook feed would always refresh and go back to the first post. Same with Twitter. Safari is the worst, tabs keep relaoding and I keep losing context or filled data. Its driving me nuts. I've had to resort to using only one app at a time to avoid this. I've tried everything.... reseting, doing a fresh restore, even a DFU restore, but nothing seems to help. Its very frustrating that Apples devices dont work as promised. I have almost 10 GB of free space on both devices, and have only 5-6 apps installed on each. I personally feel the issue is especially worse on Safari on the 64bit iPad Air, even if I have only 2 tabs open and I switch from one tab to another (without leaving Safari), it still refreshes. Its also causing me to use up a lot of data on my 3G connection (and 3G data services are still rather expensive in India). I really wish I never upgraded from iOS 6. I am really looking forward to the iPhone 6, but I'll be sure to check it first to ensure it doesn't have this issue. Otherwise I'm looking at the next Nexus as my next phone. (Though I must admit that I still love the smooth performance and stable apps of iOS and dont wish to switch back to Android).


    I have given feedback about this to the Apple website. Thanks to Helveticum and all other users for bringing this up and following it for so long, atleast I dont feel that I'm the only one with this frustrating issue.


    P.S. I've also been having some battery drain problems from iOS 7.0.4 onwards, but I guess thats a discussion for another thread.

  • rick7 Level 1 Level 1

    Thanks for writing, Aditya515.  Yes, we here on this thread have been suffering from this problem for a long time with no resolution in sight.  I noticed it in October, a few weeks after the iOS 7 release, and like many here was very glad to find this thread.


    It's especially significant that you're having the problem both on the iPhone 5 (is that the C or S?) and the iPad Air, both the newest generation of devices.  I think pretty much all iPad 2 owners like myself are experiencing the problem (well, all power users, I should say), but there hasn't been a consensus about whether it's present in the lastest devices.  Many (most?) people have it, some have it less.


    As we've been saying on this thread for the last six months, the most important thing we can do to get the problem fixed is to alert tech writers to it.  Anything you could do in this direction would be appreciated by all of us.

  • chronicon helveticum Level 1 Level 1

    Welcome to the thread Aditya515. As rick7 points out, it would be really interesting to understand the scale of this problem across the new devices. It is clear that there are a lot of iOS 7 bugs out there (and to be fair, any OS has them) but not everyone is affected by every bug. Perhaps this one is no exception. I'd love to know if there are any power users out there who never see this problem (of course, we probably will never know since they won't be visiting this thread)


    The observant among you may notice that a bizarre version of my username has been reinstated by the mods.

  • AceNeerav Level 1 Level 1

    I have a feelig that ios 8 is not gonna have a lot of new stuff and fixing this in ios 8 is going to be their stratgey as being one of the 'major inprovements' thus helping them create the 'aha' effect. They have done this with problems on os x versions like snowleopard, lion and mountain lion.


    There is a similar issue in the macbook of not going to sleep automatically in closed lid clamshell mose ehich has persisted across my mavbooks from 4 generations across 4 major os and several clean installs!

  • RibEyes Level 1 Level 1

    I get the issue (a lot) on the iPhone 5. It's not a C or S, but neither should it need to be.

  • chronicon helveticum Level 1 Level 1

    That would be a pretty feeble 'aha' moment: "In iOS 8, we bring you <drum roll> ... working multitasking! <cymbal crash>"


    I would be highly surprised if it even gets mentioned by Apple though I will be even more surprised if it is not fixed in iOS 8.


    BTW, having just moved to an Android phone running Kit Kat, I am mightily impressed. Admittedly it is a new phone (and my iPad 2 is almost prehistoric) but the task switching seems pretty slick. Apple isn't the only game in town.

  • Aditya515 Level 1 Level 1

    @rick7...Its neither the 5s or 5C, its the iPhone 5 (released in 2012).

    And yes I've been experiencing this right from October last year ever since I upgraded to iOS 7. I'm a doctor and during grand rounds in the hospital I need to have the profiles for various patients open in multiple tabs on my iPad, and thats where the problem bothers me the most, as every time i switch to another patient, the tab refreshes, wasting precious time.


    I do happen to know someone who works for the website GSMArena. I'm going to try to get in touch with him about this issue as soon as I can.


    Thank you for your reply and your effort for this discussion!

  • Aditya515 Level 1 Level 1

    Thank you for your reply. i've been experiencing this issue right from iOS has been evident in all succeeding versions, though I feel its been a little better post iOS 7.1. Somehow, its the worst on the iPad Air when using Safari. My brotherr has similar issues on his iPad 4 as well. I've never seen such poor memory management. My 3 year old Galaxy Nexus works so much better. I can only imagine how bad it must be for those who have only 512MB RAM.


    I understand that its completely fair for any OS and any new version to have bugs, but this is a major faux pas that massively affects functionality, and not fixing it for more than half a year is disgraceful. I'm surprised how major tech websites haven't publicised this yet.


    P.S. I don't see how your username could be inappropriate or offensive.
